About

Help keep Kirkland a 'walkable' city.

Adopt a Pedestrian Safety Flag Crosswalk in your neighborhood and ensure there are always orange/yellow "pedflags" available at your adopted crosswalk, and are distributed on both sides of street. The flags assist pedestrian in alerting drivers to their presence when crossing the street.

-- S. Juanita: 98th Avenue NE @ Casa Juanita Apts.
